My DD aged 7 has just swallowed a Hama bead! Something involving sucking through a straw 🙈 I seriously thought we were past this sort of thing. Am I right in thinking this will be totally fine and she’ll pass it soon?

They are tiny so if she swallowed it she will be fine and it will come out in due course.
Sucking beads through straws is dangerous though. Are you certain she didn't inhale it? That could be dangerous.

She may have inhaled it to be honest. I didn’t realise she had a straw at the time 😔

If she inhaled it she’d likely be coughing. It will pass. It’s also entirely possible to have dropped it.
If she’s not showing any effect, put it out of your mind.

No coughing so that’s a good sign 👍🏻

She will be fine. My ds swallowed a hungry hippo marble when he was a toddler. I called nhs24 for advice and they told me it isn’t possible for it to get stuck anywhere, it will just make its way thru and exit the other end. Sure enough a couple of days later there was a bright yellow ball in his poo

it's tiny and will pass right through.

agree with pp though. talk to her and make it clear that only drinks should be sucked through a straw.
